Dig and Dash (2-1)
Deploy the Kirby Tank! (2-2)
As the name implies, this is the first stage where the Kirby Tank is used. Most of this stage scrolls automatically, and Kirby will have to keep up while he shoots down the targets.
The Long-Lost Ruins (2-3)
Hooplagoon, Relic of the Ruins (2-Boss)
Hooplagoon is faced in this stage. It attacks by shooting lasers and generating a spark field around itself. It has four vulnerable pieces around its core, one of which requires a Star Dash to destroy. Destroying all four pieces defeats the boss.
